It’s okay to be YOU

Recently I was able to virtually attend a focus group with my girl Lisa Thompson for, yours truly, Self Love Beauty. We discussed all.the.things. But when Lisa asked ‘what do you think other women struggle with?’ my immediate response was ‘it’s okay to be YOU’ You don’t need to be

You Are More Than a Clothing Label

A few weekends ago, my husband and I had the privilege of volunteering at the Self Love Beauty​ Teen Conference. Our job wasn’t anything too extreme, just man the SLB vendor booth. I’ve been trying to collect my thoughts of what I brought home. And one simple thing has consistently

Depression isn’t a Choice – How I Live With It Is

I’m not sure when I decided that it did not have to define who I was but I did. My life was a roller coaster of ups and downs for years. I now have a career I love and excel at.

I realized that I had to change my mindset first and make myself a priority in my thoughts, my beliefs, my actions.

We talk about self-care like it is a passing thing that anyone can just start to do.

I began my plan by bringing more ‘creativity’ into my day. Ugg. Just repeating it has me feeling a little squishy inside because this just does not feel like a useful productive way to spend my time.

My biggest yet best battle: Beating Anorexia

Life is really hard. We all have events, times, tragedies and happiness that shape us into the person we are in this very moment. I have had many of those times myself, one of them being my biggest yet best battle and success, of beating anorexia. There are very few words that can sum up the pain of an eating disorder.
